The down scaling of MOSFET device is becoming harder and the development of future generation of MOSFET technology is facing some strong difficulties. To overcome this issue, the vertical stacking of MOSFET in replacement of the conventional planar structure is currently investigated. This technique, called 3D VLSI integration, attracts a lot of attention, in research and in the industry. Indeed, this sequential stacking of transistor enables to gain in density and performance without reducing transistors dimensions.
More specifically, 3D sequential integration or CoolCube™ at CEA-Leti enables to fully benefit of the third dimension by sequentially manufacturing transistors. Implementing such an integration provides the new constraint of manufacturing top transistor with low thermal budget (below 500°C) in order to preserve bottom-transistor performances. As most of the thermal budget is due to the dopant activation, several innovative techniques are currently investigated at CEA-LETI.
In this work, solid phase epitaxy regrowth will be used as the mechanism to activate dopants below 600°C. The aim of this thesis is thus to manufacture and to characterize transistors with low-temperature dopant activation, in order to reach the same performance as devices manufactured with standard thermal budget. The work is organized around the dopant activation, and in three chapters, according to each considered integration scheme (Extension Last/ Extension First, Gate Last/ Gate First) and architecture (FDSOI, FINFET). These chapters, assisted by relevant simulations, electrical and morphological characterizations, will enable to develop a new and stable 500°C recrystallization process for both N and P FETs, and to propose new integration schemes in order to manufacture transistors with low thermal budget and compatible with the 3D sequential integration.
